Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

Ryback goes weeks without being in a segment that draws-Rybck marks have nothing to say
Ryback has a segment one week that draws-ZOMG RYTINGZ HE'S A PROVEN DRAW!


CM Punk goes several weeks being in segments that draw-"Oh it was whoever else was involved in the segment that drew, Punk can't be given all the credit"
CM Punk finally has one night where 2 segments he's in with other proven draws loses viewers-"YOU SEE?! PUNK CAN'T DRAW, THERE'S THE PROOF, HE'S A LOSER!"


This, folks, is the kind of logic your brain creates when you've been given bleach to drink as a child.

I'll be the first to admit Punk is not a draw in this day and age. Nobody is. But the ridiculous shit some of you talk yourselves into about who's a draw and who isn't based on who you like and don't like makes me think you've been dropped when you were a baby.

I can't wait until Ryback and Daniel Bryan become full main eventers, its gonna be awesome seeing this forum completely turn on them the way they have Punk.

I couldn't agree more. It shows that some people here are just so desperate to be able to write something negative about Punk that they jump like sharks on anything that's negative, not realizing how dumb it looks when they are silent during all the segments he has that has the opposite effect. That's just not intelligent even for trolling.

No one is a real draw here, but I'd also say that no one is really a big reason why ratings are lower these days either. The main problem lies with WWE writing. There's no consistency and there's no depth due to that they always seem to take the short-term decisions. The times they do take a long-term approach they don't seem to know how to mix that with the short-term events leading up to that.

This is just an environment where it's unlikely for anyone to anyone to reach any revolutionary success. There are several on the roster doing very well, but they are limited by what they are set to perform.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

What a weird breakdown. The loss to close the Punk/Heyman/Lawler/Foley segment is big and odd unless people were actually that sick from the angle.

I'm a huge Ziggler fan, so for me, him being involved in a segment that gained big is awesome. The more eyes on Ziggler, the better. Hopefully he gets more mic time.

The 10 PM gain with Ryback...can't say I expected that. I doubt all that alone is just Ryback. I bet a lot of people were anticipating some sort of bigger angle and not an extended squash. Vince would obviously LOVE to see those numbers though!

The whole Punk/Cena thing has been beat to death really, so while I'm not surprised it didn't do a HUGE number before the overrun, I'm surprised it was the lowest point of the show and lost that many viewers.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

It's funny to see the same people week in week out in here arguing over the same fucking thing. Just don't watch if you don't like, some claim to not watch yet are always in here. Obvious trolls are obvious.

AJ possibily being in a relationship with John Cena isn't nearly as bad as someone faking a heart attack ro make fun of a guy who legit had a heart attack and JUST came back.

The two things are not equal man. Not even close. Even I felt awkward when they ran that segment.

Yeah, that actually is true, for that kind of situation. Like when a segment (before commercials) kicks off with a short match, then some WWE Be a Star or Susan Komen for the Cure thing pops up then a divas match, then commercials. . .then yes, you can say "well the first match doesn't have much to do with the segment drawing poorly". So if that happened with Punk, I'd completely agree that that's mostly responsible for any ratings losses. The Punk promo wasn't 2 minutes long though. It was at least 5 minutes, maybe 10 (I didn't count obviously).

Anyway, for the commercials/segment thing: When they advertise, "this match is up next", or "this segment is up next". . .if it's interesting, you won't have a big tune out. So commercials really really responsible for losses. It's usually just what's happening on the show. People will leave if the next segment looks like a stinker.

As for the match, I don't think people would tune out after seeing Punk and Cena enter the ring. "Oh, they're about to have a match~? *switches channel* Fuck it! I can't wait another few minutes for the match even thouggh I just watched 3 hours of Raw." Who does that?

Props to Ryback, despite failing the past few weeks, I give him as well as the hype/reasoning for the match full credit for a really good 10PM number.

And just like Q6, Q12 had basically nothing featured except for the entrances of Punk and Cena in the second half of the quarter. Their match started at the overrun, so it drew decent, but not as well as it should have. Their matches have done much better in the past. Like I said, you have #1 vs. #2 too often and it begins to lose appeal. Focusing on a Punk/Foley then Punk/Rock feud and whatever Cena does will help keep these two away.


Was all ready to mock that shitty Punk/Lawler segment too :hhh
